NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — An emotional Jeff Fisher says his former quarterback Steve McNair was a "great person" who put the Tennessee Titans' franchise on the NFL map.
The Titans coach Monday called the slain quarterback one of the "greatest competitors of all time on the field." Fisher was the only coach McNair had for the first 11 years of his NFL career, and the coach said McNair's legacy is what he did on the field and in the community.
"The Steve McNair that I knew would want me to say, 'I'm sorry. I'm not perfect. We all make decisions sometimes that are not in the best interests. Please forgive me.' The Steve McNair that I knew would want me to say, 'Celebrate my life for what I did on the field, for what I did in the community, the kind of teammate that I was,'" Fisher said.
